Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his election promise of bringing back black money from Swiss banks, Mamata said: “Swiss Bank se paisa laana tha, par aam aadmi ka paisa chheen liya (They were supposed to bring back money from Swiss banks, but have snatched money from the common man).”
Mamata will take part in a protest at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar against the Centre’s move to scrap old currency of higher denominations. She said she would be in Delhi on November 23 and 24 before moving to Lucknow. “I will be in Delhi on November 23, 24 and in Lucknow on November 29. I will also go to Bihar and Punjab… I am yet to decide when I will travel to Punjab. On December 1 and 2, I will be in Bihar to attend protest programmes on demonetisation,” Mamata said on Monday.
